    Why am i not surprised by this

    Miike is probably one of the best directors on the planet right now, yet he is not known in america that well, except for people like me that go out and look for his movies.

    The next movie i am getting of his is Gozu.

    I don't see what the big deal is with his movies? what is the matter with a woman on a date with Dr. Coat Hanger (which is in this episode apparently). Or Dead or ALive, what is the matter with any of it? It is brilliant in my mind.

    Miike pushes the limits past any known boundaries when it comes to his films. I refuse to watch Audition because the trailer alone is enough to make me wince. I love the horror genre but I love the horror story more. Takashi Shimizu is a far better storyteller. What gets me about this story is Showtime should have known what they were going to get from Miike before they tapped him to do a short story. I don't know why they pulled the plug now.

    Also they took the trailer down from the website.

    Audition is a fantastic movie, i own it. It is absolutely wonderful. One of his best.

    you really haven't lived until you saw "The Happiness of the Katakuris". Quite amazing that one could go from a film like Audition to this. Love it soooo much. It is very deeply implanted into my heart.

    If you have seen this you know what I am talking about. If not, you know you must see this film. Just throw all your thoughts of what a movie can be out the window and just relax and go for the ride.

    Actually, he has done a variety of genres with an odd edge in each.

    I didn't think that Audition was scary but then, I still don't understand what's scary about Ringu, either. :D
